Praise for Everything Is True at Once
“The unadorned voice here is as real as a sun-soaked stone in hand– eternal, life-giving, transitory. These are stunningly moving poems.”
Ed Bok Lee
About the Author
Bart Galle, the 2008 Passager Poet, lives with his wife in St. Paul, MN. Bart on writing Everything Is True at Once: “I didn’t pursue writing until my father and my youngest son Alex died within six months of each other. In the grief group my wife and I attended, we learned so much . . . most importantly, that you have to follow what seems right to you. Some people scatter ashes, others hold on to them. Some clean out rooms, others never do. I needed to write, to find words that would give some structure and meaning to my overwhelming feelings. It was hard.”
